Desch Plantpak crowned best managed company 2017-2018

Deloitte organises the Best Managed Companies program for the tenth consecutive year. Desch Plantpak participated this year for the second time and was again selected as one of the best managed companies in the Netherlands. For this Deloitte assessed the companies using the Business Maturity Model that maps both internal and external company profiles.

Jan Willem Wieringa, Managing Director: "We are extremely proud that we qualified for the 2nd time. Especially now that plastic companies are under a magnifying glass, we think we are profiling ourselves as 95% + of our material already consists of recycled plastic. Desch Plantpak was already circular before it became a fashion statement. In addition, we are within our industry one of the first with D-Grade, our bio product for professional horticulture. With this we are a leading innovator in the plastic world!"

This model has been developed together with the University of Utrecht. The Best Managed Companies programme focuses on Dutch companies with a turnover of at least twenty-five million euros, which are financially sound and have a shareholding or independent management. An overview of the winners can be found on
